Nurture Yourself – Don’t Lose Heart

Nurture Yourself - 550 - Gems1:282016.web

As we walk this journey we call life, there are bound to be rocky roads.

Paths paved in stones of different shapes and sizes that cause us

to stumble and fall from suffering, heartache and pain.

At times, the rough terrain is difficult. But, we can polish the rocks smoothly

if we believe in ourselves to carry on.

It’s up to us to creatively approach our problem-solving and grind

our own collection of rocks into precious gems.

Don’t lose heart as you continue to walk your path.

~~~~~~~~~~

Our lives are rocky in so many ways.
The challenge before us is to not let these rocks
grind us down to dust but to let us become polished brilliant gems.

Don’t Lose Heart ~ Dan Fogelberg [ CC ]

Namaste
I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Lyrics ~ Don’t Lose Heart ~ Dan Fogelberg

This life is heartless and it’s rarely just
Full of sad betrayals and misplaced trust
And it can suck your spirit just as dry as dust
And steal your soul if you let it

Oo every life contains its sorrows and pains
Its stormy weather and its rough terrains
You watch me wrestle with my length of chain
And smile so bravely as you tell me

Don’t lose heart, Don’t Lose Heart
Though it feels like yours will fall apart
Just remember when the road gets dark
I will always be beside you

Well I spent my life pursuing fortune and fame
Chasing rainbows in a shadow game
And I’m not sure what I’ve lost is worth the gain
Or why my soul remains so restless

You’ve seen me stumble, Lord you’ve seen me fall
You shared my trials and you’ve seen me crawl
And when I think that I could lose it all
You give me courage and you tell me

Don’t lose heart, Don’t Lose Heart
Though it feels like yours will fall apart
Just remember when the road gets dark
I will always be beside you

When the road gets rocky and the ride gets rough
And the best you’ve got to give ain’t good enough
There will always be a place inside my love
Where you can find shelter, where you can find shelter

Oo every life contains it’s sorrows and pains
It’s stormy weather and it’s rough terrains
You watch me wrestle with my length of chain
And smile so bravely as you tell me

Don’t lose heart, Oh Don’t Lose Heart
Though it feels like yours will fall apart
Just remember when the road gets dark
I will always be beside you
Well I will always be beside, beside you

aFrank @ A Frank Angle hosts musicals. The present one is called “Sky: The Musical“. If you haven’t participated you might want to click here to pop over and see what it’s all about. It’s a fun way to get those old songs out of your head while spreading a little cheer. aFrank reminded me of a singer I used to hear a (little) while ago called Dan Fogelberg. It was the inspiration for today’s song. Enjoy ….!!!!
